Normani‘s latest single, ‘Wild Side,’ can now be found on the upper side of the Billboard Hot 100.
The first official single from Normani’s yet-titled debut solo album, ‘Wild’ has had industry critics, fellow celebs, and fans going just that since it came roaring onto the net July 16. Powered by a high octane, Tanu Muino-directed music video (seen above), chatter around the cut and its accompanying clip not only pushed the song to the top of digital sales charts but also helped it fare well on streaming tallies.
With its inaugural sales tracking week behind it, Billboard has confirmed the tune’s debut Hot 100 placement at #14 (as predicted). Marking the highest premiere of the week (among all artists), the top 20 hit also marks her highest debut on the chart to date.
